Ōmokoroa Peninsula Projects
By 2060, the Ōmokoroa peninsula will be fully developed and home to an estimated 12,000 residents.
To cater for this significant growth and the need for continuing improvements to the peninsula’s infrastructure, Council is undertaking a series of projects – roading, recreation, cycleways, stormwater, building and planning – between now and 2022.
The total projects are estimated to cost $50 million, of which $14 million is co-funded by the Government under its Shovel Ready Infrastructure Programme.
The 15-plus Council-initiated projects, along with private development, and collaboration with Tangata Whenua, Pirirakau hapū; the Ministry of Education; and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency; will be carefully managed to keep impacts to a minimum, however there will be some level of disruption in the community during this time, and we apologise in advance for these.
In the medium to long-term these projects will be transformational for Ōmokoroa. As well as creating 150 new jobs in the process, the developments will ensure all current and future residents benefit from a great quality of life and the multitude of facilities on offer.
For more information on current projects, please click on the individual project pages below. These pages will be updated regularly as each project progresses.
Note: Under the current COVID-19 Alert Level in the Bay of Plenty, construction on these projects can proceed. Contractors, Council staff and project partners are following the necessary health and safety precautions. Should there be any change to construction and timeframes following a significant shift in Alert Levels, this will be communicated accordingly.
The Ōmokoroa community is invited to all public meetings to meet with Council during the course of these developments and ask any questions about specific projects. Key dates and documents regarding these meetings will be made available here.
